Golden One Millionth Amiga
 
3 Attachment(s)
This may have been covered before, but I visited the National Video Arcade Museum today. I've taken my time to do it, because I live in the same blooming city!!

Anyhoo, they've got the one millionth Amiga in there, complete with gold finish and a certificate of authenticity, signed by David Pleasance himself.
I've tried to clean up the photos as best I can, but the lighting is designed for humans, not cameras...

I also saw a BBC, so had to do the necessary... I was caught, but luckily by another Amigan!! :laughing

That's great! I knew about the gold 1 millionth Commodore 64 but I've never heard of the gold Amiga.

That's a fake gold Amiga... The real one, has a certificate signed by Donald Pleasance!!

Would it be the certificate that's in the first post of this thread perchance?

Who is *Donald* Pleasance? Never heard of him.

Possibly the actor Donald Pleasence, known for his portrayal of Dr. Loomis in the Halloween films, and as the President of the United States in Escape from New York?

Indeed ;)

Heh. Oddly, I did automatically type 'Donald' before realising my error and putting the correct name in!! Also, Donald's name is PleasEnce, not PleasAnce, for the pedants ;)

Donald was born in Worksop, Notts, so technically a local lad :)

For Donald, see also:
You Only Live Twice (complete with moggy, not miggy:lol)
Fantastic Voyage (the original)
The Great Escape
..and many, many others.

This is a great machine, that possibly could never be sold for any value!

Altogether I believe they produced nearly 6 Million Amiga 500's in the 5 years they produced them.

Don't hold me to this though, as I could be completely wrong. Just remember reading something somewhere once that mentioned this.

I know they sold at least a million in 1989 with the Batman pack.
